I do not miss eating at Shalimar every time I have to spend a night in Derby. Always impeccable service (Parvez et al.) combined to excellent food. I would struggle to find something to complain about. Probably the best Indian restaurants I tried so far.

There is nothing to criticize about the Shalimar Gold. The decor is striking and tasteful, the staff friendly and attentive. We were looked after by Imran, who was interested in our visit but not intrusive. We all found the food delicious and will definitely return.
